From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

     physician, son of Abijah and grandson of Rehoboam, was the third
     king of Judah. He was zealous in maintaining the true worship of
     God, and in rooting all idolatry, with its accompanying
     immoralities, out of the land (1 Kings 15:8-14). The Lord gave
     him and his land rest and prosperity. It is recorded of him,
     however, that in his old age, when afflicted, he "sought not to
     the Lord, but to the physicians" (comp. Jer. 17:5). He died in
     the forty-first year of his reign, greatly honoured by his
     people (2 Chr. 16:1-13), and was succeeded by his son
